Field Only Armoury Update, July 2023

The 2023 update to my ongoing Field Only Armoury Project is finally done! This project started way back in the fall of 2017 as a way to explore SCA armoury and get better at blazon and emblazon, and then it became it’s own thing and has gotten annual updates since 2019.

This year includes six new entries and at least that many updates to existing entries, with some FO entries changing hands, some name changes, and some re-emblazons for various reasons. This fifth annual update is up to 264 items, still sorted alphabetically by blazon so similar designs appear next to each other.

If you want the 11 page 11×17 ledger sized PDF to download or view, here you go:

If you just want the single page PDF of this year’s six new entries, that’s here:

Finally, for the completists amongst us, as I’ve done for the past couple of years, here’s a ZIP file with the Excel file I use to organize the project, a copy of this year’s working SVG file (I do all my emblazon work in Inkscape), and a short README file.

As always, corrections, comments, or other feedback is encouraged! You can drop a comment here or send me an email at
